About Miles Wallace
The local art community has flourished over the years while I have grown up in Hamilton. I am very fortunate to now have the opportunity to be working within that community alongside so many talented people.
My proficiencies as an artist include acrylic and oil painting, as well as an eclectic range of digital art and illustration skills. I also have experience as a classroom teacher in the primary and junior grades.
Working with kids is important to me because they remind me not to take myself too seriously, and to continue to appreciate the simpler things in life. My courses aim to build foundational and practical art skills in children so they can pursue their own inquiry-based projects in the future. By including history, theory, process, and technique within my lessons, I hope to expand the artistic horizons of all my students and to provide them with a vision for how they can use art to enrich their lives.
The phenomenon of viewing and creating art has provoked some of the most profound existential moments in my life. I have discovered myself through painting and the deep introspection it offers.
